Visual Interpretation and Implementation

To represent this data, I wanted to create an installation similar to Laurie Frick’s Data Art. My idea was to have people walk through a physical representation of movie budgets and their returns by having a side-by-side comparison of the two as mounds of objects. The first mound of objects would be props or objects from the movie to represent where the money in the movie budget is going to – an actor’s chair perhaps to represent how much the actor was paid for a particular movie, the wardrobe, a part of an expensive car, etc. The next mound would be proportionally larger than the first and would represent the return on investment of the movie with a pile of movie ticket stubs bigger. By having a large ticket stub pile, I hoped to evoke the same “in your face” type of experience similar to Chris Sollars’s “Pile of Trash” installation.
